“Yes, if we went back to the original Jeffersonian reason to bear arms so as to enable us to overthrow a corrupt government.”
“I don’t think so. I think there is a lot of good evidence that before the ban, the crime rate was higher and more people died.”
“No. I’m against guns altogether. I want to get rid of them all.”
“Truthfully, they didn’t take the serial numbers before the ban went into effect, so they couldn’t identify the guns either way. In the end it doesn’t really matter.”
